For the past 19 years I’ve been talking and writing about how your psychological states influence your immune function. In the past couple of years, clients and I have been talking about neuroplasticity – your brain’s ability to change. Many people become my clients because they have become hard-wired for stress and as a result, they are now suffering physically. Using neurohypnosis, (neuroplasticity techniques with hypnosis) you can re-wire your brain to be joyful, calm and relaxed which can change your genetic expression for health and wellness.
At Seattle Hypnosis with Roger Moore you can learn hypnosis to nourish and support your body both emotionally and physically. Self-hypnosis can help you to restore mental calm, increase your sense of joy, and maintain an optimistic outlook to lay the foundation for a long, healthy life.
The Science of Psychoneuroimmunology
— How Your Psychological States Influence
Your Immune Function
By Dr. Mercola, February 18, 2016: Many studies support the belief that having an upbeat and positive attitude will translate into living a longer, healthier life, and conversely, that a pessimistic outlook promotes ill health and can shave years off your life.
For example, in one study,1 the tendency to always expect the worst was linked to a 25 percent higher risk of dying before the age of 65.
Your Brain and Immune System Are Linked
As noted by Medical News Today:3
“Over the last few decades, the intriguing and pervasive links between neuroscience and the immune system have slowly been uncovered.
What might seem, at first, like an uneasy marriage between the brain and immunity has steadily grown into a fully fledged interdisciplinary area of study.
This field is known as psychoneuroimmunology (PNI).
It is well-established … that stress can induce illness and that, conversely, a fun-filled occasion with loved ones can soothe aches and pains and stave off the very same illness …
PNI has deep ramifications for the future of medical research, the treatment of diseases and our attitude toward handling stress.”
Your Psychological Health Cannot Be Divorced From Your Physical Health
By activating the relaxation nervous system, which allows you to “rest and digest,” you can ease a variety of health symptoms and restore your body to an anti-inflammatory state. You can start with something as simple as listening to a guided meditation for several minutes a day and working up to 20 minutes twice a day for a therapeutic effect.
Remember, the relationships between your gut, brain, immune, and hormonal systems are impossible to untangle. So for optimal health and effective disease prevention, it’s important to communicate to your body the message that it is not being attacked; it’s not in danger.
You also need to nourish and support your body — both emotionally and physically. In short, restoring mental calm, increasing your sense of joy, and maintaining an optimistic outlook helps lay the foundation for a long, healthy life.
